The deck builders came up with a smart solution that eases the transition from flagstone patio to pool: a multilevel deck that creates a surround for the pool, giving it the appearance of an in-ground model. Wood decking is much kinder on swimmers' bare feet and is more anti-slip than flagstone. The deck levels also serve as low, wide steps leading up to the pool deck, and can be used as casual seating or a place to dry off after swimming.
